Upward Bound HCOP


The SDSU Upward Bound Program/HCOP Academy is funded to serve 167 San Diego County students during the academic year and the summer. We are at nine high schools in the area.

The program consists of two closely related parts: a six-week summer experience on the SDSU campus and an academic year follow-up, which is an opportunity for students to continue to participate in the program.
